Wenger set to make changes for Sunderland


Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of tomorrow’s game against Sunderland in the Premier League.

Kieran Gibbs is out having picked up and injury midweek, while Mikel Arteta is available again having missed the Champions League clash because of suspension.

The boss said that after the tiring display against Bayern, “There will certainly be changes. How many? I don’t know yet.”

Arteta is the only player back in the squad which means Thomas Vermaelen remains sidelined with a calf problem that he picked up in training just before the Southampton game.

It means Mertesacker and Koscielny will continue at centre-half, although there could be recalls for Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, while Santi Cazorla will be fresh having been taken off before half-time on Wednesday.

He also hinted that he might rest Mesut Ozil, saying, “At the moment we have to let him recover from missing the penalty.”
